We have another week of free agency in the books and the Arizona Cardinals have nailed down a No. 1 cornerback, having agreed to a one-year deal with Malcolm Butler. How will this move affect the Cardinals’ strategy in the NFL draft next month?
We have a new mock draft simulation that goes a full seven rounds.
As with each simulation I have done in the last few weeks, it is to try and play out different scenarios with different priorities.
In this one, the goal is to trade back and address cornerback, running back and tight end. There are two trades to move back and the Cardinals go from having six picks to 10 overall.
Let’s go through the trades and the picks.
